i'm not scared of being dead, cos as everpres said, you're not gonna know you're dead, that will be it. i'm scared of the moments leaving up to that when you know you're dying and it's your last few moments on the earth and then it's all over forever
i'm depressed now
Unless there is reincarnation and such like.
The concept of reincarnation is one of humanity's most feeble minded and indulgent inventions.
Oh and I agree
*comes back as a dung beetle*
I'd like to be a FABULOUS swan
God thats HORRIBLE, how depressing. Yet very true.
I wouldnt want to live forever, maybe 100 years max.
I think there's always that aspect of "I wonder what it'd be like to be alive in ... years time" but the only way I'd want to see that is through the equally impossible time machine - i.e. visit significant periods in time. As a rash generalisation, for every big event one person lives through they have to live through a whole lot of down time as well.
That'd get pretty boring regardless of what might happen way down the line.
I don't really want to live now, let alone in fifty squillion years time...
You'd rather be dead?
1000 years would be nice, if I can age proportionally too (i.e. look 25 when i'm 250 etc).
I wonder when I could retire though
poor Octy! Worrying too...
but i want to see how this ship goes down, i don't care if i'm old. Being old is not THAT BAD you know, it depends on how you take it and what humour you have
and how easy it is to get in and out of the shower .. nothing worse than rancid pensioners!
Rubbish! Like you know anything about it - you're only a wee boy. For starters, my Mum told me you become invisible when you hit about 45 and no-one ever looks directly at you ever again, they also treat you like an idiot and like you have no rights.
Also, when teenagers are jumping up and down on her car roof and she politely asks them to stop, they say 'fuck off you fucking disgusting old cow'
It makes me wish I could beat the shit out of them with a blunt object and that's not going to get any better until they sterilise all people who have no intentions of bringing their kids up to show respect.
Not forever, but I think if they invented a way to give me an extra few decades i'd jump at the chance. As long as the ageing process was slowed down of course.
Also I agree that my BIG fear is not so much BEING dead, but whatever happens just before it.
Another topic I hate remotely thinking about.
ARGH ARGH ARGH
well i have worked in an Old People's Home on off since 2004...
and my dad is WELL old
as long as i died when the species does. Otherwise i'd be stuck on my own for an AWFUL LONG WHILE
Well then you're a respectful whippersnapper and they should all be like you.
Did I REALLY just say that to you?
I'd prefer to be able stop aging when I hit a certain point. I dread being old.
